My two cousins who live near Seattle and I from North Carolina stayed for three nights in Captain Jim's. It was truly a wonderful experience for many reasons, the most outstanding one being the most stunning views we have ever seen from a rental home. We luxuriated each morning, watching as the sun came up and changed the landscape into a vacationers paradise. Each evening, we were treated to amazing sunsets over the water. We could see the snowy peaks of the Olympic mountains at times. Just incredible!
Other outstanding features about the house---- it was unusually well-stocked with every amenity, it was very clean when we arrived, the beds were very comfortable and Elizabeth and her son were most congenial and easy to work with.
We definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting the beautiful town of Anacortes and surrounding area!
House was amazing. View was even better. We pulled up and our expectations were beyond surpassed. We said we wanna come back and rent this same hous so many more times. We were impressed to say the least
I have stayed at 8 or more VRBO's and I have to say this place had everything we needed. Beautiful view, spectacular sunset, spices we forgot, they had in their cupboard, lists of things to do at the house and in town. There were games, several places to have your morning coffee alone or with your group. Outdoors area for kids to play in the sand, several TV's which we never had time to turn on. The beds were all queen size and a couple futons/couches which would work for more people. The home was well stocked with everything a vacation would need. Thank you Elisabeth.
What a wonderful place to stay to explore the San Juans. The view is absolutely exquisite, it was clean, and offers everything you could possibly need in a "home away from home." We are from the east and have two grown sons who reside in the northwest, one in Seattle and one on Whidbey Island. Having visited several other parts of the State of Washington we decided on exploring the San Juan Islands, using Anacortes as a base. It was just perfect as it is extremely close to the ferries. I can highly recommend this rental. Thank you Elisabeth!
Four of us stayed here for 3 nights in Aug 2015. The views from the upper part of the house are amazing and make it an ideal spot to relax at the end of the day. The house was huge and very well equipped. Due to our late arrival the owner made arrangements for us access the property which proved to be very helpful. We would have loved to stay here longer and would definitely stay here again should we be fortunate to visit beautiful Anacortes in the future.
This place has excellent Energy! Although the decor is a bit dated (1970's), nobody in our group seemed to mind. We LOVED the place. The views are incredible and it is very close to Skyline Marina. I personally stayed in the loft (I snore ;) and it was my favorite part of the house.
My ONLY cautionary note is parking in the driveway. It is extremely steep and requires a bit of mad driving skills. Especially in a big truck with 28 scuba tanks :) I would not recommend this place for anyone with mobility issues, as this place has lots of stairs and a steep landing
